I took the last line away. That was causing the variant data type error. You haven't described what you need if the result is neither >20% above or <20% below. The code below returns blank in those cases. If that's no what you need update it accordingly.

 

GAP_v2 =
VAR _ValuePreviousWeek =
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCT ( Table1[Value] );
        ALLEXCEPT ( Table1; Table1[ID] );
        Table1[WEEK]
            = EARLIER ( Table1[WEEK] ) - 1
    )
RETURN
    IF (NOT ISBLANK ( _ValuePreviousWeek );
        VAR _Perc =
            DIVIDE ( Table1[VALUE] - _ValuePreviousWeek; _ValuePreviousWeek )
        RETURN
            SWITCH (
                TRUE ();
                _Perc >= 120 / 100; "Increase";
                _Perc <= 80 / 100; "Decrease"
) )

Hi @pjr1221 

 

Try this for your new calculated column. Table1 is the name of the table you show

 

 

GAP =
VAR _ValuePreviousWeek =
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCT ( Table1[Value] );
        ALLEXCEPT ( Table1; Table1[ID] );
        Table1[WEEK] = EARLIER ( Table1[WEEK] ) - 1
    )
RETURN
    IF ( NOT ISBLANK ( _ValuePreviousWeek ); Table1[VALUE] - _ValuePreviousWeek )

 

On a different note, please always show your sample data in text-tabular format in addition to (or instead of) the screen captures. That allows people trying to help to readily copy the data and run a quick test, plus it increases the likelihood of your question being answered. Just use 'Copy table' in Power BI and paste it here.

@AlB Thank you so much, AIB. In addition, if the difference is increased by more than 20%, I would like to enter "Increase", if it decreases by more than 20%, I would like to enter "Decrease". but what should I do?

Thank you very much for your help.

@AlB  If the result is neither >20% above or <20% below, I would like to enter "Null".

Hi, @AlB  I've applied it to my data, it's not working.

 

error is :

Expressions that yield variant data-type cannot be used to define calculated columns.
